With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I’ve been thinking about rich and delicious treats to make that can be easily shipped to friends and loved ones. I settled on a classic dessert with an added twist –– Martha’s favorite rich, fudgy brownies enrobed in melted chocolate and topped with a few festive details.

recipe

This quick and easy recipe for rich chocolate treats comes from Faith Durand, Executive Editor of The Kitchn, from her book Bakeless Sweets. They have a pleasantly nutty flavor, with crisp bits of crushed cracker and chopped hazelnut mixed in -- and you can put them together in just a few minutes.

Loaded with fall flavor, apple brownies mix up as quickly as the chocolate version -- just the thing for a school bake sale. Any sweet, firm variety of apple will work in this recipe, which was developed by John Bunker's friend Amy Traverso. Recipe adapted from "The Apple Lover's Cookbook," by Amy Traverso.

Up the festivity quotient by serving these brownies in clear drinking glasses and topping them with whipped cream, neon sanding sugar (layercakeshop.com), and gum-paste numbers (signesugar.com) that spell out the year. To make sundaes, serve with ice cream.

recipe

Nut lovers can add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts to the brownies. Walnuts pack a good dose of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids as well as protein and fiber. Pureed black beans replace some of the butter used in most brownies. Their earthy flavor and dark color are great matches for chocolate.
